9 Mr. W. E. Moreland Cseated at leftl, Superin- tendent of the Houston Public Schools, is elected by the School Board of which Mr. Ewing Werlein is president. Mr. Moreland's duties are many and va- ried. Under his leadership and farseeing vision the Houston School System has expanded rapidly and has attained an excellence in all fields of secondary education. Mr. .l. H. Wright Cstanding at leftl is Director of Personnel for the Houston Independent School Dis- trict. He is an active participant in all civic projects. He was for several years, assistant principal of La- mar High School and still has a deep interest in the welfare of the pupils themselves. Mr. J. O. Webb is the Assistant Superintendent of the Houston Schools in charge of the Senior High Schools. Mr. Webb is pictured at the left in his spaci- ous office on the first floor of the Administrative Building. Mr. W. J. Moyes Cat leftl has just placed two new football trophies on exhibit in the library. Football boys Dick Bintliff and Jack Carson ad- mire the Raymond Pearson Award which Lamar has received four times for winning the City Cham- pionship. The other trophy is the one awarded to Lamar by the lnterscholastic League, for winning second place in the State Big City Play-off. In an impressive assembly program Bill Chanslor ac- cepted these trophies on behalf of the team. Mr. Madden stands in front of sixteen hundred football fans at a "pep" rally and urges them to continue to support their team. Once a football coach himself, he gets great pleasure out of spon- soring the victorious Indians. Two of the yell leaders stand by waiting to say a word about the coveted Sportsmanship Cup which Lamar has won twice in the last four years.

8 -57" 'ii . 'F -- ' fs ' ,NS Q... Q . 14 mini tr fi n ln 1937 the halls of Lamar were opened for the first time. That fall almost all of this year's seniors were just beginning their long climb toward graduation. Mr. William J. Moyes, the principal of the new school, was busy opening "the finest school building in Houston and the best equipped in the Southwest," as the Houston Chronicle had called it. Organizing the new school was no easy job, but Mr. Moyes had a record of service that readily qualified him for the position. He had taught at Allen Academy in Bryan for four years, and at Marshall Training School in San Antonio, where he had been co-principal for two years. From San Antonio Mr. Moyes came to South End High School in Houston where he taught English and Latin. From South End High School he was promoted to the principalship of Central High Cnow Sam Houstonl. There he served as principal until Lamar was opened. Mr. Moyes' sincere interest in the welfare of Lamar School and its students, his boundless enthusiasm for the success of his football teams, and his remarkable wisdom in guidance toward scholarship have made Lamar one of the outstanding schools of the Southwest. Mr. Jesse Madden, assistant principal, came to Lamar in the fall of l945. He brought with him a sense of humor, a keen interest in athletics, and a desire to help the students understand their problems and assume their responsibilities. He has aided Mr. Moyes in solving the problems of Lamar. l

The Uffice Mr. Clay pulls the venetian blind cord and immediately the office is flooded with the sunlight of another day. Soon the voices of teachers are heard as they come down the hall toward the office. Thus at about eight o'clock each morning the activity begins slowly, and mounts steadily throughout the day to make the office always a place of accomplishment and confusion. A few minutes later the office will be filled with teachers who must "sign in" before beginning their day's labor, outside, the walk up to school is becoming more crowded, and soon the students will also be pouring into the office to add to the general confusion. The office staff and its assistants are constantly on the run looking for grade cards, blank admits, absentee slips, or selling football tickets, looking up where a student is that period, or carrying out any other whim a student might have. Executing their jobs with great proficiency and apparently no bothers at all, this staff is nevertheless glad to see three o'clock roll around. As the sound of the voices gets further away, the blinds again are closed, and another day in the office is complete. ans Betty Gray Sallie Smith Roaer Gilliam Pat Ev , , , . T
